I've been baking fish like this for years. Even with a little butter, it's relatively low fat, especially if you use non fat mayo. The mayo mixture is also quite nice as a dipping sauce for artichokes. Also, any white fish can be substituted. And if you have some herbs on hand, add them either to the dipping sauce or the mayo mixture.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs orange roughy
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise, fat free or low fat is fine
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 cup fresh breadcrumb
- 2 tablespoons shallots, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
- 1 -2 tablespoon butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 375^F Spray 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray.
- Place orange roughy in pan.
- Combine mayonnaise, lemon juice to taste, and dijon mustard.
- Spread evenly over orange roughy.
- Combine bread crumbs, shallot, garlic and 1-2 tablespoons melted butter in a ziplock bag.
- Add enough butter to coat ingredients a little.
- Shake to mix.
- Sprinkle bread crumbs over orange roughy.
- Bake uncovered until fish is done and crumbs are light brown and a little crispy, 20 to 25 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
- Usually it takes about 10 minutes per inch of thickness, including the topping.
Wonderful! I cooked it for 25 minutes as "duo_mom" suggested. However, I used finely chopped onions (didn't have any shallots), used 1/3 cup bottled lemon juice (didn't have a fresh lemon) and it turned out terrific! This recipe is going to be a standard for my house! Thanks!
I liked it, however, I would definitely recommend cooking it the full 25 minutes if not a little more, so you don't experience undercooked fish. Which is a huge turn off for people who don't really care for fish, but want to go outside of their comfort zone. Overall, okay.
I'm going 4 stars as that was the concensus at the dinner table. I thought 5 appropriate, my husband and son thought 3. I am the fish lover. This just might have been too mild for them.
